One of the first tasks that you may be asked to undertake upon, as a health educator, is to develop a program and to securing funding for the program. As such, the aim of this session long project is to familiarize you with the development of a program and the grant proposal process.
There are two parts to this assignment.
Part I: Identify a health problem to be addressed by the health education intervention for which you will seek funding. This problem should affect a local population in the area in which you work or reside and should be something that lends itself to prevention, e.g., obesity, stroke, diabetes, domestic violence, child abuse, teen pregnancy, fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD), drug abuse, HIV/AIDS, etc. Use the scholarly literature to support your selection of this health problem.
NOTE: Please provide your response in a 2-page essay in which you will identify the problem, define the local population affected by the problem, and state the rationale for proposing a health education intervention to address this problem. Endeavor to use scholarly literature in identifying the problem.
NOTE: Keep in mind that this essay will provide vital information for your concept paper in your next SLP assignment.
Part II: Your project will entail identifying a mini-grant funding opportunity for a hypothetical educational program/project of your choosing and constructing a mini-grant application. Mini-grants are small grants made to support projects, programs, or events related to an area of interest/concern to a funder. Applications for mini-grants are typically shorter than those for traditional grants, making it easier for individuals/organizations new to the grant seeking process to apply for and secure funds.
Conduct an Internet search to identify a mini-grant that could be used to support an intervention to address the health problem you selected in Module 1.
Length: Part 1 should be no less than 2 pages.
Length: Part 2 should be no less than 3 pages. Limit set by funding agency requirements relative to the specific mini-grant program.
Assessment and Grading: Your paper will be assessed based on the performance assessment rubric that is linked within the course. Review it before you begin working on the assignment.
The following guidance appears only in Module 1, but it applies to the assignments throughout the course:
File format: Your work should be prepared using Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, or Excel depending upon the assignment instructions. For assignments requiring video or voice recordings, use media formats that are supported by MyTLC Courses as noted in our Trident Support page.
In-text citations and references: Be sure that all information and ideas in your papers are supported by in-text citations and corresponding references at the end of the paper.
Scholarly sources: At least three scholarly sources should be included in your paper. Online sources must be limited to credible professional and scholarly publications such as peer-reviewed journal articles, e-books, or specific webpages on websites from a university, government, or nonprofit organization (these have extensions .edu, .gov, or .org). Presenting consumer sources such as e-magazines, newspapers, Wikipedia, WebMD, or other commercial websites (these have extensions .com) as references is not appropriate.
Scholarly writing: Use an academic paper format, not an essay based on your opinions or experience. Avoid using the first person in writing. Synthesize what you learned from the sources you read; write papers in your own words; and cite sources within the text, as well as include a properly formatted reference list.
Use of direct quotes: Use of direct quotes should be avoided. Only use direct quotes when preserving the exact words of an author is necessary. In the rare instance that directly quoted material is used, it must be properly cited (with quotation marks and page numbers in the in-text citation); quotes should not exceed 5-10% of the total paper content.
